Cascade Partners Completes Sale of Kalamazoo Emergency Associates


Kalamazoo Emergency Associates (KEA), a leading physician owned emergency medicine group serving multiple Emergency Departments throughout Southwest Michigan, was acquired by American Physician Partners. APP is a leader in emergency medicine and hospital medicine management services. The partnership will expand American Physician Partners' Michigan presence while enabling KEA to strengthen their services to a growing number of hospitals in Southwest Michigan.

Said Eric Blackwell, MD, president of Kalamazoo Emergency Associates, “we partnered with Cascade because of their well-established involvement in the healthcare industry and strong advocacy for their clients.”

“After discussions with many potential emergency medicine groups, we chose American Physician Partners because their philosophy of patient-centered care closely mirrored ours," said Blackwell. "This partnership will strengthen our group's ability to deliver exceptional care to the patients we have the privilege of serving."

Cascade Partners served as the exclusive financial advisor to Kalamazoo Emergency Associates on this transaction.
